In developing our transport strategy, we have sought opportunities to limit the impact of the construction of Sizewell C on the local highway network wherever possible.

The key elements of the strategy are to:

  • Move material on and off the main development by rail or sea where practical;
  • Build on on-site accommodation campus to reduce the number of workforce journeys;
  • Provide park and ride facilities at key locations on the A12 for workers to travel by bus to the main site;
  •  Operate working patterns that minimise workers travelling at peak times;
  • Provide direct bus services to and from the site – such as from Ipswich and Lowestoft, with pick up services for workers using the East Suffolk rail line;
  • Provide local bus services from Aldeburgh and Saxmundham via Leiston;
  • Enhance and extend the existing network of local cycle paths; and
  • Provide road improvements where necessary to mitigate the impact of the development.

Details of traffic modelling can be found in Section 6 of the Summary Consultation Document and additional analysis will be provided at a later consultation.
